Leaning tower of Pisa is a little less skewed
Skew he will always remain, and there they are in Pisa but very happy, given the massive flow of tourists, where their famous tower. Yet it is the building over the past seventeen years again what is right come to be: exactly four inches, according to new research.

The tower between 1993 and 2001 stabilized because of the almost 15,000 tons of heavy building from the twelfth century but continued to bags. And that years of work have until today is still effect, as it turns out. Over that eight-year period, the engineers not only in the tower about 45 inches right to withdraw, since the end of the work is the building without saying another four inches right. The gradient is now the same as at the beginning of the 19th century, and that is better than the scientists had expected.

The tower of Pisa leans, a small 4 meters, against 4.5 metres in the 90's. The next two - to-three hundred years, the tower would not topple, the Italian Bahis engineers is strong. Right the tower will, however, never come to be, and that like the inhabitants of Pisa. Their world-famous leaning tower attracts thousands of tourists every day to the city.

The tower of Pisa started by a soft surface all skewed to bags immediately after the start of the construction in 1173. The working layers for a long time silent, and took in a total of 200 years. Over that period, tried the engineers on the project worked the tower right through to the adding of a new floor perpendicular to build. As a result, the tower is not only crooked, but is he actually bent built.
